Dalit Ning Lahi

Back in July 2000, Uncle Jim Camaya sent me some excepts from a book that came from Dr. Catacutan; it contains some of the works of poets and writers of our province, Indung Capampangan. The following is the first of such tilamsic ding pluma ding matenacan nang anac ning balen Capampangan...

Dalit Ning Lahi
(Philippine National Anthem, Capampangan language)

Labuad a mapalad
Mutya nang lalu sampat
Ning dayat-malat
A queca misapuac.

Budning sultana
Guinu na ning Malasia
Pemalena'na
Ning tapat a sinta.

Caring bunduc mu at caqueuan
Batis, ulu't pulung cacal
Bitasang macalimbagan
Ing quecang catimauan.

Qng bandila mung maningning
A tecutan da ring tacsil
Capilan man e culimlim
Ing aldo na at batuin.

Labuad ning aldo, sinta't tepangan
Mayumung diling queque ca mie
Ing queca que ngan paimate.
